JP Concerts: Andromeda Quintet
Women at the 49th Parallel
>> ABOUT THE CONCERT
Andromeda Quintet will perform six stylistically diverse pieces that we believe should be a part of the standard brass quintet repertoire. Each is by a living, female composer from North America, representing different generations, and corresponding to geographic areas that are relevant to members of the quintet.
>> THE PERFORMERS
Ryan Noe, trumpet; Katie Driscoll, trumpet; Marina Krickler, horn; Gregory Platt, trombone; Matthew Visconti, Bass trombone
